They face Clinton tonight.
Field hockey continued their drive to the top by shutting out Nipmuc, 5-0. Jackie Clark had 2 goals while Hanna Harris, Shannon Hynes, and Colleen Fellows each had one. Kileigh Hynes earned 4 assists. While the Warriors had an improved defense in the second half and held the Rockets to a single goal, their offense had great difficulty moving past Auburn’s D. Abby Lucas only had 2 saves for the Rockets.
After the game, Coach Bethann Cormier said, “Nipmuc was added to the schedule a few years ago because they’re a solid team that gives us a good game.” “The older kids are great working with the younger players including the two freshmen who started tonight.”
Auburn has raised their level of play by taking on good non-league teams including D1 teams like Longmeadow and Wachusett. They will face Holy Name tomorrow at 4:45pm. Auburn’s current record is 5-0.
